Antarctic navigation observations. British Royal Navy lieutenant Henry Rennick (1881-1914) using an artificial horizon apparatus to carry out navigational observations on 9 February 1911 during the British Antarctic Expedition (1910-1913). Artificial horizons are used to help establish exact locations when viewing conditions are poor. Also known as the Terra Nova Expedition, the primary expedition objectives were scientific. Led by Scott, a shore party of 33 (Rennick was part of the ship's party) spent two seasons exploring on and around the Ross Ice Shelf. Scott and four others died in 1912 returning from their journey to the South Pole.
